My research interest is to describe probable hibernation phenotypes, common to a vast variety of  organisms, including humans; with well‐known biochemical pathways to point‐out specific metabolic  trails that may relate to different aspects of hibernation.  It can be explained as a strong genetic hibernant  machinery inherited since the First Cell, modified by specific environmental conditions required for an  appropriate adaptation.  Hibernation can be seen as a key energetic survival response common in species  from different Kingdoms, developed by them, but phenotypically changes, according to their evolutionary  complexity level.
